4 reasons to head to the beach in winter - Ocean Blue Coastal Retreats

Just because its winter doesn’t mean that the beach is out of bounds.  In fact, here on the Mornington Peninsula a winter beach escape is just the ticket to get away ‘far from the madding crowds’ of the city.  The beach in winter is magical, here’s why…..

  1. Empty Beaches

    The beautiful beaches are deserted of people and just perfect for kids and pets to explore. Check out the rock pools, collect shells, take stunning photos…you will have the beach all to yourself.

2. Perfect weather for toasting marshmallows

Our beach houses are perfect for winter escapes, open fires or fire pits make it such a cosy winter experience.   Grab the kids and the dog and book the Ultimate Family Winter Escape Package – Marshmallow Madness.  With $240 of winter activities and inclusions the three days will simply fly by.

Have your kids ever toasted marshmallows or made S’Mores on an open fire?  Well we have set up the perfect package for you to do just that.  Arrive to your Make Your Own S’Mores Pack – a bag of marshmallows, chocolate teddy bear biscuits and hot chocolate. Our Firestarter Pack of 30Kg of logs, kindling and firestarters will mean you can toast as many marshmallows as you like.  The beach in winter can keep the kids entertained for hours but to top it off and to make sure they sleep like babies when they get back to your accommodation, we are treating you to:

  • A family pass to the Arthurs Seat Eagle (2 adults 2 children)
  • A family pass to the Enchanted Adventure Garden (2 adults 2 children – excludes treeesurfing)

Happiness is a toasted marshmallow…
